Ladies' Festive Fun


 On Sunday we enjoyed our last competition of the year.  Nine teams set out to Cha Cha Cha around 11 holes in sunny, calm conditions, novelty hats and Christmas jumpers.  We then adjourned for a well-earned meal and a good ole natter. It was good to see so many there including some of our Ladies we hadn't seen for a little while! 

The winners were Nancy, Sam and Joyce, runners up Margaret Ross, Ali and Fiona (one of our new members), third place went to Louise, Carol and Anne Wood. 

June took prize for Best Christmas Jumper chosen by Clint. 

We presented mementoes to our medal winners and a few other prizes to close the year: 

Winner of the Birdie Tree - Marion Currie

Winner of Net Eclectic - Ali Carslaw

Joint winners of Gross Eclectic - Marion and Nancy 

Best performance over the SGU medals and representing the Glen in next years SGU Regional Medal Finals were:

Nancy Thorne - Silver

Ann Nimmo - Bronze 

Finally, winner of the Order Of Merit was Sam. 

Congratulations to all our winners today and throughout the year.  It's been a great season, roll on 2019 so we can do it all again!

County Success for Glen Ladies

On Thursday 1st November I had the pleasure of seeing four of our Glen Ladies pick up prizes at the East Lothian Ladies County Golf Association prize giving.  June Elliott, Anne Wood, Brenda Goldstein, Nancy Thorne and Wendy Gootjes (sadly not there) picked up no less than nine prizes between them this year. 

 

I reported on June and Anne's success earlier in the year as they picked up the bronze scratch and handicap prizes at the Spring Meeting before June went on to win the Bronze Quaich.  Anne won the aggregate bronze prize for consistent performance across all the meetings.  Brenda won the bronze prize in the Autumn Meeting. Wendy was placed in the Summer and Autumn Meetings and Nancy was runner up in the Summer Hole in Hole Knockout competition.

 

Fantastic performance Ladies!

A busy week for Glen Ladies..........

Murrayfield Friendly

Our Ladies hosted Murrayfield ladies for a friendly match on Monday, 3rd.  It was a horrid morning but after a democratic vote it was decided the match would go ahead.  They bravely played 12 holes before deciding enough was enough and retiring to the Clubhouse for some well-earned refreshments.  Hopefully, the Murrayfield ladies will come back on a nicer day to day to enjoy our beautiful course and views.

Nine & Dine

It’s been a busy week for the Glen Ladies!  On Wednesday 5th we had our second Nine and Dine – a fun competition followed by a meal in the Clubhouse.  Ladies played a Tex-Mex Scramble in warm, calm conditions.  The meal afterwards was a lively affair concluded by singalong to the Nine and Dine singing golf bag trophy!  Winner were Janice, Isabel and Geri – look after that trophy girls!

Annual Outing to Eyemouth

On Saturday 8th 20 Ladies went to Eyemouth Golf Club to play in their open Texas Scramble.  The course came under scrutiny as we enjoyed coffee and bacon rolls.  When we saw dots on the horizon that we realised were other golfers we recognised the challenge ahead of us. 

It’s fair to say we all had a good walk!  The course was long and the greens challenging but the weather was kind and well supplied with biscuits and jelly babies we all made it around. The day concluded with a lovely meal and presentation of prizes.

Whilst we weren’t in the running for the open competition prizes the Violet Bowl for the Glen Challenge was won by Anne (Wood), Marlene, Karin and Nance.  Runners up and winners of the super hard quiz were Margaret (Wellwood), Margaret (Ross), Barbara and Ann (Nimmo).

 

Winners of summer knock out competitions

In case you missed the e-mail updates the Summer Fours and Dickson Trophy competitions have concluded.

The Summer Foursomes were won by Ali Carslaw and Brenda Goldstein. Worthy runners up were Nancy Thorne and June Elliott.

The Dickson final was played on 5th between Anne Wood and Nancy Thorne.  After a close match Nancy won on the 17th.

Congratulations to our winners, commiserations to our runners up and well done to everyone who took part.

Inaugural Ladies Nine & Dine

The Ladies section held their first Nine & Dine on Thursday 28th June.  18 ladies played a Mexican Scramble over the 9-hole course on what was a beautiful summer evening.  After the golf the ladies gathered for a meal served overlooking the beach and taking advantage of a fabulous sunset.  It was great to see some of our new members alongside the more familiar faces.  

The winners, with a score of 29.2, pictured below, were Anne Lafferty, Carol Biggar and Grace Turnbull.  As you can see they were thrilled to receive the Nine & Dine Trophy, a singing golf bag, yes a singing golf bag!  The trio will hold this magnificent trophy, kindly donated by Janice McLeod, until the next time we play.  So watch out for the next one - it's a fun night out!!

SGU Revive Active Regional Medal Final

Marion Currie and Barbara Baikie played at West Linton GC in the SGU Revive Active Scottish Women’s Regional Medal Final.  Both played well and Marion has qualified for the final to be played at the Duke’s St Andrews in June.

Golf Fashion Soiree

The Golf Fashion Soiree held at the club 17th May was a great success. Over 30 ladies from the Glen and other local clubs came along to spend their money and enjoy a social evening.  We raised over £100 and Fraser secured plenty of sales.  We hope to repeat this event next year.
